Barely one week after a woman cut off her son’s penis for reasons best known to her, another woman has allegedly burnt the private parts of her 7-year-old nephew with a stove for allegedly stealing N100 in Afariogun area of Oshodi, Lagos State.
The woman identified as Saratu, burnt the victim identified as Razak Qudus, a orimary four pupil of a private school.
Saratu’s neighbours reported the matter to a coordinator of the Child Protection Network, Ebenezer Omejalile, living in the area, who in turn reported at the Makinde Police Division before she was arrested.
He said: “The victim is her nephew. The boy attends a private nursery and primary school around Afariogun Junction. He was accused of stealing the money in the school.
“The woman brutalised the boy’s genitals. While we were at the police station, I also informed the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, Alausa. I am sure justice will be done in this matter. The boy has been taken into government’s custody.”
When contacted, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the arrest.
She said: “The suspect rubbed pepper on the boy’s genitals and started beating him.
“The boy in the process fell on a burning stove and incurred burns in his private parts. The suspect has been charged to court and remanded in prison.”
